Scriptural Because We've Always Done It! - Robertson - 0 views

  • "The first orphan home under a board of directors, and supported by churches of Christ, since the beginning of the Restoration was organized in Midway, Ky. The charter for this home, known as the Kentucky Female Orphan School, was granted by the General Assembly February 23, 1847.
  • Although the name of this institution was Kentucky Female Orphan School, it was also a home.
  • Dr. Pinkerton was interested in the education of girls it was natural that his desire to be of help to orphan girls should take the form of a school which should be to them not only a home, but also a means of education.'
